NFL Alumni Association CEO Beasley Reece On “Adulting With Richard Sherman,” Post-NFL Life, Finance, Goals, DDPY & More

The NFL Alumni Association is made up of former NFL players, coaches, executives, spouses, cheerleaders, and associate members. Part of NFL Alumni’s dual mission is “Caring For Kids,” and its player alumni are known to give back in their local communities by raising funds for youth-related charities through the organization’s 35 regional chapters; it is a tradition that has existed for more than 50 years. The other half of NFLA’s mission, “Caring For Our Own” is to serve, assist and inform its members and their families. Members are offered a diverse package of wellness, business, career and legal services to help them and their families be healthy, productive, and connected to one another.

Among the alumni stories being told via the NFL Alumni Association is that of Richard Sherman. Adulting: With Richard Sherman is an original show from Million Stories Media in which Sherman brings his passion for financial literacy to a wide audience. Per Shelley Miles, CEO of the Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship: “Partnering with the NFL Alumni Association is an exciting way to support both NFL alumni and to reach a broad audience through stories and learning tools to help them attain better financial futures. Reaching these audiences is a top priority and finding ways to offer important financial life skills is a shared mission for both organizations.”

Beasley Reece is the CEO of the NFL Alumni Association. Following a long on-field career as an NFL player, Reece has won 5 Emmy Awards and 12 Associated Press Awards as a broadcaster. In 2012, Reece — who, outside of the football spectrum, covered the Philadelphia Phillies journey through their 2008 World Series Championship pursuit — was inducted by Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia into their Hall of Fame. NFL Alumni responsibilities aside, Reece remains an in-demand host for events.
